LEXINGTON, Ky., May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Valvoline Inc. (NYSE: VVV), a leading supplier of premium branded lubricants and automotive services, today reported financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2019.

(PRNewsfoto/Valvoline Inc.)

"Our best-in-class Quick Lubes business delivered another strong quarter, with double-digit same-store sales growth and the addition of 26 net new stores," Chief Executive Officer Sam Mitchell said. "In Core North America, the actions we implemented in response to difficult DIY market dynamics drove notable improvement in our branded volume in the retail channel, leading to better overall sequential performance for the segment. Challenges in the market remain and impacted year-over-year results, and we continue to work to stabilize performance in Core North America. The recent increases in raw material costs have reduced our earnings expectations for the year."

Second-Quarter Results

Reported second-quarter 2019 net income and EPS were $63 million and $0.33, respectively, compared to reported second-quarter 2018 net income and EPS of $67 million and $0.33, respectively. Second-quarter 2019 adjusted net income and adjusted EPS were $67 million and $0.35, respectively, compared to adjusted net income of $68 million and adjusted EPS of $0.34 in the prior-year period.

Second-quarter 2019 adjusted results exclude, among other items, $7 million ($0.04 per diluted share) of restructuring and related expenses, recorded in selling, general, and administrative (SG&A) expenses. (For a full reconciliation of adjusted results see table 7.) Second-quarter adjusted EBITDA of $122 million increased 21 percent sequentially and was flat to the prior-year period.

Effective Oct. 1, 2018, the company adopted the new revenue recognition accounting standard. The adoption primarily resulted in a reclassification of certain items within the company's income statement and for the second quarter had a $2 million unfavorable impact on net earnings, negatively affecting Core North America's volume and profitability, and had no impact on cash flow from operations. Second-quarter 2019 results compared to the prior-year period included approximate increases of $9 million to sales and $13 million to cost of sales, as well as a decrease of $1 million in SG&A expenses. Excluding these impacts, sales would have increased 2 percent, cost of sales would have increased 4 percent, and SG&A, excluding restructuring and related expenses, would have declined 5 percent.

Operating Segment Results

Quick Lubes

  • SSS grew 10.8% system-wide, 10.2% for company-owned stores and 11.2% for franchised stores
  • Operating income grew 16% to $44 million; EBITDA grew 15% to $53 million
  • Quick Lubes ended the quarter with 1,327 total company-owned and franchised stores, a net increase of 26 during the period and 186 versus the prior year

The Quick Lubes operating segment continued its strong performance, including exceptional SSS results. The growth in SSS was the result of a balanced contribution from an increase in both transactions and average ticket. Marketing investments made in customer acquisition and retention programs continued to drive higher transactions. Premium mix, pricing and an increase in revenue from non-oil-change services led to improvement in average ticket.

Sales and segment EBITDA growth were driven by increased SSS and the addition of 186 net new stores, as compared to the prior year, with 26 net new stores added during the second quarter. The year-over-year increase in stores includes more than 100 franchised locations in Canada through the recent Great Canadian Oil Change (GCOC) and Oil Changers acquisitions, both of which are performing well in their transition phases. 

On Feb. 20, the company announced a joint venture in China with a local quick-lube services provider, piloting an expansion of Valvoline's Quick Lubes business outside North America with three stores now open. In addition, the company completed its previously announced acquisition of an independent, 12-store system in Las Vegas on April 12. 

Core Nort h America

  • Operating income and adjusted EBITDA each improved 29% sequentially versus first quarter 2019
  • Lubricant volume declined 9% versus the prior-year period to 22.4 million gallons
  • Operating income declined $6 million year over year to $40 million, and adjusted EBITDA declined $5 million to $45 million

Recent actions taken to improve DIY performance — including more aggressive trade promotion and the optimization of promoted price points at key retail partners — coupled with the non-recurrence of first-quarter transitory items and favorable raw material costs resulted in substantial sequential improvement in profitability, with Core North America's adjusted EBITDA increasing 29 percent versus the first quarter.

The lubricant volume decline of 9 percent year over year, primarily attributable to the DIFM installer channel, had a relatively modest impact on profitability and was largely transitory. This was due in large part to the timing of the recognition of revenue to distributors, the transfer of the GCOC product sales to the Quick Lubes segment, and lower volume from a key account in reorganization proceedings.

Ongoing softness and competitive pressures in the broader DIY retail automotive lubricant market will continue to impact year-over-year volume in the retail channel.

International

  • Lubricant volume was flat versus the prior-year period at 15.0 million gallons
  • Lubricant volume from unconsolidated joint ventures increased 3% to 9.9 million gallons
  • Operating income declined $1 million to $23 million, and EBITDA declined $2 million to $24 million

Volume grew 8 percent in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. Offsetting this growth were declines in Latin America and certain Asia-Pacific markets.

Operating results continued to be negatively affected by the strong U.S. dollar, with an unfavorable net foreign exchange impact of $2 million in the second quarter.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

  • Total debt of approximately $1.3 billion and net debt of approximately $1.2 billion
  • Year-to-date cash flow from operations of $134 million; free cash flow of $86 million
  • On April 12, the company amended its credit facilities, extending the term to 2024, reducing overall borrowing costs and increasing liquidity

Fiscal 2019 Outlook

Valvoline's second largest U.S. blending facility, in Deer Park, Texas, was temporarily shut down on March 18 because of a fire and resulting fuel and chemical releases at a nearby third-party petrochemical terminal. The plant, which sustained no damage, has reopened and restarted operations. During the shutdown, the company's product supply team quickly and effectively shifted production to other locations, causing little to no impact to customers. Costs related to the shutdown are being treated as a key item, including approximately $1 million in fiscal Q2 and the remainder in fiscal Q3. The company expects to recover the majority of the loss through its insurance coverage.

"I am pleased with the work of our teams during the temporary plant shutdown in Texas. We reacted quickly, met our customers' needs and managed through a difficult situation," Mitchell said.

"We are modestly lowering our volume and sales growth, while increasing our same-store sales guidance," he said. "The strong sequential improvement in results was encouraging, but recent raw material cost increases have led us to moderate our full-year outlook. We now expect adjusted EBITDA in the range of $460 million to $470 million.

"We continue to execute against the broad-based restructuring and cost-savings program announced during the quarter, and we expect to generate annualized operating expense savings of $40 million to $50 million by the end of fiscal 2020."

The fiscal 2019 outlook, provided in the table above, includes the impact of the company's adoption of new revenue recognition accounting guidance, effective as of Oct. 1, 2018.

Valvoline's outlook for adjusted EBITDA, diluted adjusted EPS and the adjusted effective tax rate are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude or will otherwise be adjusted for items impacting comparability. Valvoline is unable to reconcile these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP net income and diluted EPS for 2019 without unreasonable efforts, as the company is currently unable to predict with a reasonable degree of certainty the type and extent of certain items that would be expected to impact GAAP net income and diluted EPS in 2019 but would not impact non-GAAP adjusted results.

Conference Call Webcast

Valvoline will host a live audio webcast of its fiscal second quarter 2019 conference call at 9 a.m. ET on Thursday, May 2, 2019. The webcast and supporting materials will be accessible through Valvoline's website at http://investors.valvoline.com. Following the live event, an archived version of the webcast and supporting materials will be available for 12 months.

Basis of Presentation

Certain prior-year amounts have been reclassified to conform to current-year presentation. In addition, the company adopted the new revenue recognition accounting standard, effective at the beginning of fiscal 2019, using the modified retrospective method; accordingly, Valvoline's consolidated and segment results for periods prior to this adoption were not adjusted. However, opening retained deficit was increased by $13 million, representing the cumulative effect of the changes, primarily related to the timing of certain sales made to distributors.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

To aid in the understanding of Valvoline's ongoing business performance, certain items within this news release are presented on an adjusted basis. These non-GAAP measures, presented on both a consolidated and operating segment basis, which are not defined within U.S. GAAP and do not purport to be alternatives to net income/loss, earnings/loss per share or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of operating performance or cash flows. For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures, refer to Tables 4, 7, 8 and 9 of this news release.

The following are the non-GAAP measures management has included and how management defines them:

  • EBITDA, which management defines as net income/loss, plus income tax expense/benefit, net interest and other financing expenses, and depreciation and amortization;
  • Adjusted EBITDA, which management defines as EBITDA adjusted for certain non-operational items, including net pension and other postretirement plan expense/income; impairment of equity investment; and other items (which can include costs related to the separation from Ashland, impact of significant acquisitions or divestitures, restructuring costs, or other non-operational income/costs not directly attributable to the underlying business);
  • Free cash flow, which management defines as operating cash flows less capital expenditures and certain other adjustments as applicable;
  • Adjusted net income, which management defines as net income/loss adjusted for certain key items impacting comparability as noted in the definition of Adjusted EBITDA above, as well as the estimated net impact of the enactment of tax reform; and
  • Adjusted EPS, which management defines as earnings per diluted share calculated using adjusted net income.

These measures are not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and contain management's best estimates of cost allocations and shared resource costs. Management believes the use of non-GAAP measures on a consolidated and operating segment basis assists investors in understanding the ongoing operating performance of Valvoline's business by presenting comparable financial results between periods. The non-GAAP information provided is used by Valvoline's management and may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies, because of differing methods used by other companies in calculating EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted EPS. These non-GAAP measures provide a supplemental presentation of Valvoline's operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted EPS generally include adjustments for unusual, non-operational or restructuring-related activities, which impact the comparability of results between periods. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide investors with a meaningful supplemental presentation of Valvoline's operating performance. These measures include adjustments for net pension and other postretirement plan expense/income, which includes several elements impacted by changes in plan assets and obligations that are primarily driven by changes in the debt and equity markets, as well as those that are predominantly legacy in nature and related to prior service to the company from employees (e.g., retirees, former employees, current employees with frozen benefits). These elements include (i) interest cost, (ii) expected return on plan assets, (iii) actuarial gains/losses, and (iv) amortization of prior service cost. Significant factors that can contribute to changes in these elements include changes in discount rates used to remeasure pension and other postretirement obligations on an annual basis or upon a qualifying remeasurement, differences between actual and expected returns on plan assets, and other changes in actuarial assumptions, such as the life expectancy of plan participants. Accordingly, management considers that these elements are more reflective of changes in current conditions in global financial markets (in particular, interest rates) and are outside the operational performance of the business and are also primarily legacy amounts that are not directly related to the underlying business and do not have an immediate, corresponding impact on the compensation and benefits provided to eligible employees for current service. These measures will continue to include pension and other postretirement service costs related to current employee service as well as the costs of other benefits provided to employees for current service.

Management uses free cash flow as an additional non-GAAP metric of cash flow generation. By deducting capital expenditures and certain other adjustments, as applicable, management is able to provide a better indication of the ongoing cash being generated that is ultimately available for both debt and equity holders as well as other investment opportunities. Unlike cash flow from operating activities, free cash flow includes the impact of capital expenditures, providing a more complete picture of cash generation. Free cash flow has certain limitations, including that it does not reflect adjustments for certain non-discretionary cash flows, such as mandatory debt repayments. The amount of mandatory versus discretionary expenditures can vary significantly between periods.

Valvoline's results of operations are presented based on Valvoline's management structure and internal accounting practices. The structure and practices are specific to Valvoline; therefore, Valvoline's financial results, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS are not necessarily comparable with similar information for other comparable companies. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS each have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income and cash flows from operating activities as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Because of these limitations, you should rely primarily on net income and cash flows provided from operating activities as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS only as supplements. In evaluating EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS, you should be aware that in the future Valvoline may incur expenses/income similar to those for which adjustments are made in calculating EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS. Valvoline's presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS should not be construed as a basis to infer that Valvoline's future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.
